GeoLite2 Developer's Package

Our developer's package is designed to provide businesses with the ability to include IP address geolocation technology within their products. The GeoLite2 Developer's Package allows you to distribute GeoLite2 and GeoLite Legacy databases (including updates) royalty-free for one year.

Please note that the GeoLite2 databases included in the GeoLite2 Developer's Package are not as accurate as our GeoIP2 databases.

How can GeoLite2 databases be used?

There are many applications that can benefit from the addition of geolocation technology. For example, the GeoLite Developer's Package can be used for ad-serving engines, web analytics, traffic blocking/redirecting tools, spam-filters, and firewall software.

With the Developer's Package, you can distribute your product without having to worry about paying royalties to us. Should your clients need more accuracy, they can purchase GeoIP2 database licenses from us. GeoIP2 databases are drop-in replacements for GeoLite2 databases.

Database licensing

We offer redistribution licenses for GeoLite databases that allow you to package the databases with your commercial products.

Code Licensing

We include a license for redistribution of our API code with your commercial software.

Difference between GeoLite2 and GeoIP2 databases

MaxMind GeoIP2 databases are more accurate than the GeoLite2 databases. Currently we offer royalty-free redistribution for GeoLite databases.
